Grobnik motorcycle racetrack
Adrenaline-fuelled month of May

Croatia's biggest and best-known motorcycle racetrack, the racetrack in Grobnik, is revving up to host as many as seven racing events throughout the month of May. For your next surge of adrenaline-fuelled motorcycle racing, this is the place to come – Grobnik is awaiting you!

Starting on the 6th of May until the end of the month, with only few days with no programme, the Grobnik motorcycle racetrack will host a series of car and motorcycle races. This is Croatia's biggest racetrack, located ca. 15 kilometres from Rijeka, where car and motorcycle races are no big news. However, the fact that there will be an attractive race almost every day in May is a piece of news that deserves our attention.
The programme starts with bikers. From the 6th to the 8th of May, the Automotodrom Grobnik in collaboration with the company C&C Italia organises the 3rd King of Grobnik race, which will after that continue in June, July and September.
From 5 to 8 p.m. on the 7th of May, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the traditional Grobnik Trackday. The admittance to this race is allowed to all cars that function properly, regardless of model and power. As in previous years, much fun is guaranteed on the racetrack and outside it. The bravest will also have the chance to drive in the Taxi Drive.
The 12th of May is reserved for the lovers of expensive cars: the title of the race, Lamborghini Rally, sounds interesting enough. Much excitement is guaranteed on the next days too: the period from the 13th to the 15th of May is reserved for the international Alpe Adria Championship.
After a short break, the Grobnik racetrack will host a new event on the 20th of May – the race of the Pistenklub luxury cars.
The OMS RT race – Swiss championship will take place from the 24th to the 26th of May, and the Motorhappening biker event is scheduled for the period from the 27th to the 29th of May.
Whichever event you choose, plenty of fun is guaranteed. For all those interested in cars and the accompanying details, it is good to know that the smell of gasoline, beautiful hostesses and extremely fast ride are only a part of the overall atmosphere on Grobnik.
